The Indian choli is a short midriff-baring top worn with either sari or lehenga also called a blouse. Since the front is often covered with the saree, the back of the blouse remains the most interesting part.
Saris are often woven with an extra length of material meant to be cut off and fashioned into a matching choli. The choli may be sewn so that the elaborately woven borders of the sari material form the bottom edges of the choli sleeves. However, cholis need not match the sari. There is a growing trend towards stretchy, comfortable cholis made from knit materials. Expensive designer cholis are sewn with padding and reinforcements so that a bra is not needed and backless or off-the-shoulder cholis can be worn with ease. (wikipedia)
Here are some saree blouse design ideas
U shape–this is a classic. It shows off skin yet its conservative.
Spaghetti strap- the back strap can be simple or shaped. It is supported by thin spaghetti like shoulder straps. These can be made out of fabric or beads.
Corset- this is a strapless blouse. The back strap is replaced by corset like strings that can be adjusted according to the body. It is a figure hugging style of blouse and doesn’t suit everyone. This is a good blouse to show off toned shoulders and collar bone.
